The English words for the 80th anniversary of the team, each with a limited number and a global limit, perfectly inherit the domineering spirit of the Flying Tigers in those years, and continue to write the indissoluble bond with the history of aviation with actions.
The inspiration for the Avenger AVG Flying Tigers 80th Anniversary Taiwan Limited Edition comes from the American Volunteer Group (AVG) of the Republic of China Air Force established on August 1, 1941. It is decorated with the shell of the P-40 fighter piloted by the pilot. With the logo of the tiger with wings, it is nicknamed the Flying Tigers. This flying squadron was founded by retired U.S. Army Air Force Captain Claire Lee Chennault (Claire Lee Chennault). He was served by the National Government as an Air Force adviser in 1937. During the difficult and treacherous situation during World War II, it was managed by U.S. President Ross. With support and acquiescence, about 100 active, retired, and reserve American soldiers were assembled at that time, plus about 100 P-40 fighters in the initial period, to formally establish the AVG Flying Tigers, which is still popular today.

The team logo entrusted to the Disney Company was designed with the concept of “a tiger with wings leaping forward towards the target, with a raised tail, intertwined with the body to form the English letter V which symbolizes victory.” In addition, the limited serial number 01-80 is engraved on the top of the black DLC titanium case back, and the bottom is “AVG 80th ANNIVERSARY”.
